I’m still alive. Hanging out and imagining cool pirate characters 🙂
re: my last post, it was prompted my my sketchy colour notes to myself for these pirates
And here’s the thing – when I’m imagining these characters, I’m imagining real life people that I am then translating to cartoons. I wanted the third woman across to be representative of, say, Ajak Deng (seriously follow this link, the pictures are gorgeous):
(Though tbh I was imagining kids I went to school with and women I’ve seen at shopping centres rather than a model but you get my drift :P)
But I kept lightening her skin until I could see her expression and until she didn’t contrast so much with the white background. And that’s just rubbish. I need to do better.
